Ktima Domaine Gerovassiliou in Epanomi, Greece, is located not far from Thessaloniki in Macedonia. It was founded by the oenologist Evangelos Gerovassiliou.

From the vinery you have a view over the vineyards and over the sea. The winery is modern, equipped with stainless steel tanks, temperature control etc. It also houses a wine museum displaying old artefacts: amphora, cork screws etc.

But the mosquitoes were killing me

>> Saturday, 19 September 2009



Winery building at night, illuminated. Alpha Estate Winery, Amyndeon, Macedonia, Greece.

And the explanation for the headline. The picture is taken from the vineyard. It was lateish evening. I was perilously balancing on top of a wooden box shielding an irrigation pump. Irrigation pumps always leak a little bit so the soil was very humid, a few puddles here and there. Which is a very fertile ground for mosquitoes. Balancing on the box, fighting the insects, trying to set the camera... Lots of fun. But worth it.

Oozing of ouzo, ahem, sorry tsipouro, I mean

>> Thursday, 17 September 2009

Apologies for the rather silly headline, but sometimes it is low tide in inspiration.

It is of course tsipouro since we're in Greece here, more specifically at the tsipouro bar of YaMas (excellent restaurant with a good wine selection, worth trying) in Thessaloniki. (Or is it perhaps ouzo all the same?):

European Wine Bloggers Conference

>> Friday, 11 September 2009

Perhaps one should call it the International Wine Bloggers Conference instead of the European Wine Bloggers Conference (those Americans call theirs just The Wine Bloggers Conference). Or maybe there will be an Asian and an African to come. Why not?

Anyway.

It is coming closer (end of October). Here is more info on the Wine Bloggers Conference in Portugal (Lisbon).

I have not yet signed up for it. don't quite know why. Maybe i should do that now? Seems nice enough as an event.

Looking at some of the programs that the kind organisers (Ryan, Gabriella and probably some more) have set up around the conference (revving-up days and cooling off days?) I saw that I've already been to several of the place they've planned for. Pity. On the other hand it'd give me all the more time to socialize...

So, I thought I'd give you a bit of a teaser of how it may look when you come there (as of course you will!?).

So here you have the EWBC teaser slide show:

Grabbing a bottle... But the point is, I am testing this Photoshelter hosted service that allows me to make my wine picture archive available.

And it allows you to grab the code for any of the slide shows and republish them where you like. So if, for example, you're posting something on the Scala Dei winery in Priorat you can "grab" the code for the slide show below and use it as illustration. (However, apart from grabbing the slide shows it is not OK to take our photos and use them elsewhere for illustration - unless you have our permission. All photographs are protected by copyright.)

(So what's this "testing" about, you might ask? I am trialling a service called Photoshelter, to store images online and make them available for licensing and purchase: BKWine Photography / Per Karlsson on Photoshelter: http://pa.photoshelter.com/c/bkwinephotography. And of course just plain viewing. This will allow me to creat galleries and slide shows that I can embed, as, for exampled, shown above. One difficulty to get around is that slide shows don't work well in emails (or blog update notifications). One neat feature is that these slide shows can also be 'grabbed' by anyone who wants to illustrate e.g. a blog post on the subject. Benefit to them: illustration. Benefit to me: marketing.)

In the 1980s the Cusine' family took over this wine property and started an ambitious program of replanting. They planted, among other grape varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and other !"international" varities but also kept the traditional grapes such as Macabeo, Xarel-Lo, Parellada and Ull de Liebre (Tempranillo). The castle-like main building is surrounded by land with a very good micro climate where e.g. Cabernet Sauvignon makes very good wine.
